how seriously you take the rhetoric of the president of the united states. president obama said at the united nations that he was determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here. i have never used the word "bluff." when we say we do not take it seriously, we mean that it impacts -- it does not impact our policies in the slightest. iran is a vast country, is a great country. let's assume a few terrorists come and assassinate some of our officials. will the country be damaged? >> no.no. a couple of bombs will be set to explode. will t country be destroyed? no. we see the design of regime at the same level as the bombers and the criminals and the terrorists and even if they do something, even if they do something hypothetically, it will not affect us fundamentally, but, vis-a-vis, the expressions of the president of the united states because i do not wish to speak in any way about anything that may be interpreted as meddling with america's domestic or electoral affairs, but perhaps my
of the united states, but did you know there is not one, not two, but five barack obamas running in brazil and 11 more obamas with different first names? candidates in local elections across that country have adopted some surprising names to try to distinguish themselves, to get attention. they' they're batman and robin, too. bin laden, superman, spiderman and a few michael jacksons. some of the candidates had the good luck to be born with names that might give them a political edge or might not. there is some ted kennedys, john kennedys. the candidates are likely to be remembered. president obama, if you need a new jingle, i know where you can find one. the correct answer to our gps challenge question was c. the united states has 11 aircraft carriers. the rest of the world has a grand total of 10. thanks to all of you for being part of my program this week. i will see you next week. >>> hello, everyone. i'm fredricka whitfield with a check of our top stories. two americans, one soldier and a civilian are dead after a fire fight broke out in afghanistan. it happened at a temporary ch k ch

president obama's relationship with prime minister not yahoo! at israel. tell us first about some of the influences on president obama intends to be thinking of the situation in the middle east and particularly the state of israel. >> host: when you look at this relationship that has fallen apart in israel, typically people say it is just that chemistry between the prime minister benjamin netanyahu and the president of the united states. it is just unfortunate circumstances these two guys just don't get along. >> host: sometimes that happens in life. >> guest: the feeder stews but the goals of the country in the organization ahead of personality. if they are unable to do that, fine. i discovered it really isn't a personality clash. really, obama's thinking on israel go back to the 1980s. i found three handwritten letters, written by barack obama to address a common appellate tinian activists, where she is trying to ingratiate himself. you see also when i touch on this briefly in the book and the reverend wright who goes after reverend wright is someone who is influential and help

are defending 11 states. some of them not in the friendliest of terrains for president obama, but as we saw last year in kentucky, a state that where the president did not prevail, our candidate was all about jobs, all about bringing people together to make the tough decisions to expand the economy and great jobs, and we prevailed, so i think you're going to see our candidates come through in this election. >> when you look at, montana, lamb ham, north carolina, washington state, all of those held by democrats, all look very threatened by pretty strong republican races, that's 50% of the seats you're defending. >> right. that's what makes it so exciting. >> yeah, yeah. you look excited. >> you look at some of those states, i mean, in the state of new hampshire where maggie hassen is running very competitively. she follows a republican governor that retired very popular. you look at washington state insy who wrote the book on jobs creation. and it's about wanting to see our country create jobs more quickly and some of those states, quite honestly, are in parts of the country geographically where
in washington. with just five weeks until election day and new polls showing president obama leading in key swing states, the presidential debates may be mitt romney's last best chance to turn this race around. and so we wanted to find out what the romney/ryan plan is when they face off against obama and biden. we caught up with running mate paul ryan saturday in new hampshire. before we sat down for an exclusive interview, we spoke briefly as he was about to it take the stage for a campaign town hall. >> what do you think just before you go out on stage each time? >> president obama is taking us in the wrong direction. mitt romney and i are offering them a different direction and i'm excited at the opportunity to give people the chance to pick that choice. that is what gets me excited about this. >> thank you so much for coming out, everybody. >> chris: congressman, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> great to be back with you, chris. welcome to new hampshire. >> chris: thank you. what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in the first debate? >> he needs to give the american p
? >> president obama is leadion in the polls nationally now and leading in the swing states so the question is how do you reaffirm the existing status quo, in a sense the sale has been made. and he is just there not to seeking any short of dramatic moment. he just wants this thing to happen and be history. for mitt romney i think the problem is and i think this came out in your interview, >> gretchen: chris, suddenly you hear the republicans talking about a choice election. bill kristol said look you got to go at obama's record and make it not only about what he has done in the past but what he is likely to do in the future. that is what the prescription will be for the republicans. most people will watch the debate and a lot of people will watch. they think about 50 million people. a huge audience. if those people come together table are going to make up their mind that would be one thing. most of those people have already made up their minds. i think they are watching for the human moment and that zinger. i think that is what people will take away. >> chris: i want to talk about lawyer yo
polls give president obama an edge in three key swing states. once you isolate voters who are extremely interested in the election, the race is much closer. >> romney's tied when you focus on the inexpressibly intrigued. and he's up by two points when you count only voters who are psychotically engaged. folks, i have got my own source of polls, conservative blogger dean chambers who analyzed these polls favoring obama and then reached the scientific conclusion that they just didn't look right. chambers' work throws all polls into doubt now. even the internal ones i have taken of myself. i mean, the results say i'm not that excited about mitt romney, but as a conservative i feel like i should love him. maybe the sample size is too small or maybe i checked the wrong box and i'm actually latino, you know? >> it's not a good sign just six weeks from election day to bash the polls. >>> the first presidential debate is next week, next wednesday. looking back to the gop primary debates for a moment, there were probably times when you heard a candidate's response and thought, can that really be
remarkable thing when you go back and look at the state by state swing state polls, in florida or in wisconsin or in ohio or in iowa, the remarkable thing and the only thing that has changed in terms of the demographics is that barack obama is now tied with mitt romney or beating mitt romney among voters over 60. that's the very group that is the most skeptical of barack obama. they have been the hardest group for him to win over, but he is now winning them over and there's only one reason for that, it is medicare. and, you know, as much as i totally understand what howard fineman was saying, there was no other reason to pick paul ryan other than his budget. paul ryan was not the governor of a state, he can't deliver his home state from what we're seeing -- >> we know that now. >> you picked him because you wanted to tell the right we're going to take your ideology and take it to main street and then he didn't want to do it. he is trying to hide -- >> let me -- now you got into a little thought here about howard's thinking, my question to you, and it's a tough one, didn't he kn
of the two-state solution. you must finish the conflict and it will be a palestinian state if obama adopted the approach to build up the palestinian state but in my book i prefer a new paradigm we have tried it for the last 20 years we tried with gaza and it did not help us as well. it should be a three state solution. i speak about jordan, egypt and israel. we should not be a palestinian state the tests with lap band and the gaza. islamic radical forces. >> guest: to see the same happening? i do not. look beyond the current administration but but to e eliminate a sum of bin laden when loathsome let the this stage president decided to kill osama bin laden. 24 hours later it condemned the u.s. for killing one of the greatest leaders. do know which? the leader of the hamas organization in gaza to say i condemn the u.s. but on the other end by sending the troops to keogh osama bin laden they've pressure israel to sit down and negotiate. but with whom? the same people who incite against the jews everyday? that is why if we have to get to a point* we cannot allow the palestinian state but to get
now in states like virginia. they lost it by 270,000 votes four years ago. i don't think obama can get the college turnouts. and i think romney is going to cut into the northern margin substance staley. i think the -- more promise, this equestering can put a big cloud over all the workers and defense workers, what's going to happen to them after november. >> all the demographics how you have to go about changing virginia. look at unemployment, it's low. they're not having as much of a problem as the rest of the nation. it's raising a huge question for federal workers as to who's going to get cut. demographics have changed, the republicans need to understand there's a very multi ethnic area. fairfax county, the largers jurisdiction in the state. so they have to address those issues and they're doing a great job, i think. >> romnalex, if people know pennsylvania, it really is a purple state, very independent minded people. there was a susquehanna poll that had milt romney within about two points. if he's going to have a strategy in pennsylvania, he's got to focus on those counties that a
romney's pass to president obama's 270 electoral votes. one of the most conservative swing states that president obama won back in 2008. the amount of money that both campaigns are throwing at this state, it's very clear that nobody has put it away yet, and in fact that obama leads most of the polls. if some of these swing states aren't going to -- >> well, dana, they sent paul ryan to the major league state of ohio and he was talking about medicare while come paining. >> i want to be very care about this, mitt romney and i will never waiver in our commitment to our seniors. our plans actually save these programs, they make no changes for people in or near retirement, they strengthen medicare and social security for a generation. >> i'm curious, a new quinnipiac poll shows that toward the end of august, more seniors in florida favored mitt romney on medicare. now that has flipped, more seniors now support president obama with medicare. what do you make of the numbers, did mitt romney make too much baggage on this critical issue when he selected paul ryan? >> part of that is more e
there is a black line. the united states -- obama has said they will not be allowed to get nuclear weapons. obama's already got that on the record. so there is this black line that already exists. >> president obama as he points out puts responsibility for our military action . >> we respect the right of nations to access nuclear power. one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness that power for peace. that's why the united states will do whfrom obtaining a nucl weapon. >> meaning that we are members of the united nations. if the united nations decides to use military force, then we will go along with the united nations because we're also -- [ all talking at once ] >> america has made this u.n. worthless. america has made a statement that we will not -- >> obama -- >> obama has said so. that's it. >> obama is tossing this load right over to united nations,he not? >> no money. >> no. >> he said the united nations will take care of it in so many words about. >> no, that's not what he said. >> we're members of the united nations. >> he was clearly saying what the united states
, a media attention in the battle ground state and he's trying to do that president obama in nevada and the foreclosure crisis and the unemployment rate double digits and the president knows economic challenges here and hoping he'll get a little play for his message and his plans and rally and it's going to start a few moments behind me with someone with early voting starting in nevada in a couple of weeks and they feel good in the obama camp. nevada even though it's hard hit, the polls show the race very close and they think mitt romney should be far ahead with the economic message and people are hurting here. they think it's a sign that romney is not breaking through and the president is doing pretty well in nevada. >> harris: you bring up a good point. this first debate focusing on domestic policy and you talk about those tough economic issues on the ground, in nevada where you are now, it would be interesting to see just how well watched the first debate will be by those people there, thank you so much, ed henry. fox news will bring you the presidential debate live. our prime ti
of the united states. but did you know there's not one, not two, but five running in brazil and 11 more obamas with first names? candidates and local elections have adopted some surprising names to try to distinguish themselves to get attention. there are multiple batmen and robin, rambo, spider-man, and a few michael jacksons. some of the candidates had the good luck of being born with names that might give them a name with political edge but maybe not. a couple of jimmy carters, richard nixon and others. the candidates are likely to be remembered. president obama, if you need a new jingle, i know where you ca
. the new nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll has president obama up in all nine battleground states. in the same poll the president leads mitt romney 53% to 39% in nevada amongst folks who say they're going to vote early. while mitt romney leads 57% to 39% among election-day voters. the president's lead even big anywhere north carolina among voters, 57-41. how dot early voting numbers, how do they affect the race? >> they affect the race because you're trying to bank your votes. the people who are going to vote for you. the obama folks want those people to come out, turn out and vote right away. we've saw president obama campaigning in ohio earlier last week. and president obama had this message -- one, register to vote. and two when early voting starts, on tuesday october 2nd, go to the polls right now. they want to start banking the votes. it was a strategy in 2008. to prevent any type of october surprise, you want to get, if you're an obama voter go vote now and get that done. get it out of the way. >> you mentioned the october surprise, you look at the numbers closer than just a
. it is a big state that could make all of the difference between obama and romney. all of that is true. but who cares? or to put it more precisely, are we missing the bigger picture for florida and the rest of the united states? which is that this country has become ungovernable. its politics are poisonous. miami dade colleges the biggest in the nation. 175,000 students. all of them called on the streets in this massive voter registration drive which comes at the end of months of court battles over access. what i need you need? how far in advance can you do it? poorer voters are less likely to get to the polls on time. folks think florida republicans are fighting dirty. >> the efforts have come from republicans. in essence, you have the fact of suppressing the vote. >> that is what you see the purpose is? >> exactly. >> that is a fundamental issue at the heart of american democracy. if you think people are trying to stop their opponent's voting. >> extremely self. especially when the people that are registered to vote are with a red -- organization like ours. they are normally minorities. by st
of things today. eight months ago, in the state of the union speech, obama issued an appeal to congress to spend more federal money on construction projects that would generate jobs. what he said was, take the money we are no longer spending at war. use half of the to pay down our debt. use the rest to do some nation building right here at home. we pointed out in a fact check that night the fallacy of that idea. the idea that some kind of budget surplus is going to be created when you stop the wars is fiscal fiction. those wars have been primarily financed by borrowing. if you stop the wars, you do not have new money, you just have less debt being added. it does not treat a pool of ready cash. on top of that, the supposed savings of this supposed peace dividend is inflated because it is based on spending numbers that are extrapolated into the future that would come from the height of the intensity of the war and they do not follow the downward trend that it has been in reality. we pointed all that out in a fact check on a state of the union night. how does the administration react? thre

. but still won the state due to tally from early voting. this year, president obama could receive the same edge from early voting. and the iowa secretary of state's office says that democrats have a 5 to 1 advantage over republicans in the number of absentee ballots requested. now, though the state's republican party promises to close that advantage by election day, the candidates seem to have embraced early voting. both camps approximate put out ads that look and feel like closing arguments. here's president obama's. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide for yourself. >> and with a very different pitch, governor mitt romney. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> okay, se
are some sort of discipline testing so the smart campaigns you know and the obama campaign is emblematic of this basically thinking of almost everything the campaign does this somehow formed by data but you know, you get down to the state-level campaigns and they definitely are having you know people who are voter file managers who are doing the data and targeting people who are doing the data. you get up to the presidential campaign and one of the things, after they won the nomination built what they call the data science team and increasingly that sort of function is becoming a core function of the campaign. it used to be that there were lists for fundraising or voter list and you could buy them from vendors or consultants and now, you know, basically it's a core function of a modern campaign to have people especially on the voter side just crunching and processing data. >> host: if any of us were to go into the romney campaign are the obama campaign and we were to look around the headquarters how many people -- is there a lot of young staff? what does it look like? >> guest: chicago d
in november. new hampshire was the state where romney kicked off his presidential bid last june. he also came back and kicked off his general election candidacy there. right now, mr. obama is leading polls in new hampshire and all the other swing states. >> how many stars would you have given today? >> how many will you give me? >> four possible. >> four stars. >> there you go. >> all right. things are changing though. jim ramsey will join us. >> we would like another but we're not going to get it. bob: you may not realize how good a day this was. having an 80 degree temperature today. 79. how about that for a high temperature. that's about 10 degrees above normal for this date. not much to show you on the time lapse camera. it looks like a gorgeous postcard. we had blue skies most of the day. that helped the temperature to move up rather dramatically. wind have been breezy but they are beginning to die down. our high temperature again today 79 degrees. would you believe it? but we're probably going to see a little drop tomorrow. something on the orde

's obama advantage across the board. look at ohio, plus seven. virginia, plus five. these are key states. is the race over? >> absolutely not. and that happened pretty quickly, right, david? you saw the change in those polls happen very quickly. and i'm here to tell you it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night when governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mate, after you have your own convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you'll have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this r
